CoS Giveaway: Celebrate Fela Kuti’s birthday with free stuff, album stream

on October 15, 2010, 2:50pm

Today is late afrobeat pioneer Fela Kuti‘s birthday, and to celebrate — pardon me, Felabrate — we are giving stuff away. What better way to pay tribute to the man?

First up, we have a copy of the full Zombie batch, meaning 11 Kuti albums from the 1976-1980 era, on six digipak CD’s.

We also have for you a pair of tickets to see an upcoming performance of the Fela! Broadway musical. The musical runs until January 2nd, features Patti LaBelle on most dates, and tickets range from $59-$252, so you might want to get your hands on these. *

If interested in either of these two prizes, send us an email with your name and addresses. We’ll select two winners at random on Sunday, October 24th.

While not everyone can win these lovely prizes, all can feast their ears on our exclusive widget below, featuring a stream of Kuti’s 1977 album Zombie.

Plus, if you don’t happen to luck out with tickets to Fela!, never fear — if you purchase here, you can buy tickets at a discount (amount varies depending on how early you buy them).

* = Tickets do not include travel and accomadation
